TheFredericton Model Railroad Club (FMRR)
was founded in 1975 by a group of interested modelers in the Fredericton area, but today, includes members from Oromocto to Woodstock, NB. There are about 45 members now including, several original members. Within the membership there are about 20-25 active members.
In the world of clubs the FMRR is rather unique in that we do not have an executive, formal meetings or club dues. However, we do meet every 3 weeks on Wednesday evenings (17/year) at different members homes (please see our show brochure available elsewhere on this site).
At these meetings one can often have the choice to watch railroad related videos, run some trains, chat about trains or just have a general conversation. They start at 7 PM and last for maybe 1-1/2 to 2 hours, plus, the hosting member also provides refreshments.
During the year we hold several events. A Christmas dinner for members and their families and our Annual Model Train Show held on the first Saturday of December. We also set up at the Brookside Mall for the week before our show; we participate in the FredKid's Fair and the ???day at the McAdam Train Station. Occasionally we are invited to participate in Trains shows hosted by other NB clubs.
This club is open to all adults, Male and Female, interested in the hobby. Young people are very welcome also. We do request however, that, at first, they be accompanied by an adult but, they may attend alone, if mature enough.
